|“||The Sonic Blast will cause massive damage to everything. This spell can help you in the diciest situations.||„|
Towers: The primary use of Sonic Blast is to destroy towers.
Traps: Much like towers, traps are greatly affected by the spell.
Castle Gate: Sonic Blast does considerable damage to the castle gate. This opens up the chance to run ahead and damage or destroy the caste gate with the hero.
Versatility: At higher levels, Sonic Blast works against everything.
Touch & Go: It's not necessary to stay with a unit or a structure to sustain the effect of Sonic Blast. Once touched by the spell, it stays with its victims for the remainder of the spell's duration. Meanwhile, the hero can move on to spread the effect on to other targets.
Cooldown: With Sonic Blast being an essential spell especially against firebolt towers, pushes often hinge on the readiness of this spell.
Barricades and blockades: While even those obstacles eventually fall when confronted with a Sonic Blast, it takes a lot of time compared to Bladestorm.
Protected firebolt towers: Sonic Blast often replaces Firestorm as the main weapon against firebolt towers. With them, it faces the same problem: The spell's range doesn't extend to firebolt towers behind barriers. Against this, a highly upgraded firestorm with 3.0+ range would be more preferable.
Initially weak: While strong against towers in general, a level 1 Sonic Blast is a little weaker against firebolt towers as a level 7 Firestorm.
Expensive to upgrade: Upgrading Sonic Blast requires considerable effort.
Sonic Blast is the main weapon against towers and should be used primarily against them. Because of the spell's power and cooldown it's important not to waste it but use it at the right time. This can mean to leave out single towers in order to have the spell ready against groups of two or more towers.
In the beginning, firebolt towers are the spell's main target. Later, as cannons grow stronger and skull towers pose a greater problem due to their immense amount of hit points, that focus can shift.
At the castle gateEdit
Upon reaching the castle gate, it's often a good idea to deliver the first Sonic Blast, so the gate can take some damage right away. It's also possible to have the spell deal with freshly spawned troops as well.
With higher levels, Sonic Blast gains more destructive power. For its first target, this power can be overkill. In most situations, the advantage of a higher level spell becomes apparent with targets hit one or two seconds later. Since they're only affected for the small remainder of the duration, the difference in power decides whether they stand or fall.
To get the most out of the spell, boots with a speed boost can be very helpful. Since the hero is able to reach additional targets sooner, the spell's effect can remain a little longer.
In combination with Bladestorm/Blizzard Edit
When it comes to choosing spells for battle, Sonic Blast and Bladestorm are a great combination for non-boosted enemy troops. Sonic Blast then deals with most structures while Bladestorm handles troops and blockages. Sonic Blast and Blizzard work better for boosted enemies like wolf and arblaster, as well as boosted towers.
In dire situations, when health is low and a group of troops or towers needs to be dealt with quickly, using both Sonic Blast and Bladestorm/Blizzard can be an effective desperate measure.
